Romeo builds a remote control that can control the PJ Masks.


The following characters appeared in the episode "Catboy Takes Control":


The episode starts off with the class building their remote-controlled vehicles. After the teacher compliments Connor, Amaya, and Greg’s helicopter model, feeling they have a good chance of winning the remote-controlled vehicle competition, Amaya and Greg praise Connor for being a great team leader. The class heads outside to test out their vehicle models. However, nothing works; the inside parts of everyone’s remotes have been stolen.

That night, the PJ Masks decide which vehicle to use for this mission. Taking note of what his friends said earlier, and since he’s the leader, Catboy declares to take the Cat-Car, and the team takes off. Using his Cat Ears, he hears beeping sounds and drives over to the source. The source is coming from Romeo, who is building his Radical Romeo Remote with the inside parts of the class’s controls.

Romeo uses Gekko as a demonstration for what his invention does; it can make anyone do whatever the villain wants. Since he knows the PJ Masks will refuse to help him in his latest scheme, he’s going to use it on them so they’ll have no choice but to do so. Romeo zaps Owlette and takes her with him to steal some more remotes in town.

Catboy and Gekko follow Romeo's Lab; Gekko has a plan to stop Romeo. Once they get close to the vehicle, he can sneak in and grab the remote using his Super Gekko Camouflage. Catboy has another idea that he feels is much better: he’ll drive under Owlette so Gekko can jump and pull her down. He’s team leader, so they’ll do what he says, despite the fact that Gekko can’t jump as well as him.

Gekko gets out of the Cat-Car as Catboy approaches Owlette. He tries jumping as Catboy intended him to do, but not high enough to reach her. He crashes into a streetlamp, and Romeo and Owlette take off. However, Catboy doesn’t blame Gekko that he wasn’t good enough for his plan. He’ll think of another plan later, and the boys head over to the sports field where Romeo and Owlette are located.

Romeo controls Owlette in giving him the remotes and zaps her out of his control. Once the rest of the team arrives, he further explains that the remote he currently has is a smaller version because it can only control one person at a time. The bigger version will control everyone in town at once using the stolen remote parts and a satellite dish in order to give it an extra boost, and the PJ Masks are the ones to help him build it. Otherwise, he’ll control them to do random things.

Romeo goes into his lab with the stolen remotes to finish building his big remote as Catboy and Owlette build the satellite tower on top of the vehicle and Gekko obtains a satellite dish. Owlette gets an idea; she’ll distract Romeo while Catboy sneaks up behind him and takes out the small remote he placed in his backpack. Catboy decides he should sneak into the lab and get the big remote instead. He’s in control since he’s the leader, despite Owlette’s warning about a password lock on the lab she spotted when Romeo went inside.

Owlette calls Romeo over to instruct her how to build the satellite tower. Catboy jumps over to the hatch, but notices the lock Owlette mentioned. He attempts to decode the password using his Super Cat Speed, but fails when it triggers the alarm. As punishment, Romeo makes the PJ Masks work faster and mutes them when they complain; the satellite tower is instantly finished. Romeo makes the PJ Masks jump after he makes Catboy retrieve the big Radical Romeo Remote. Owlette and Gekko only hop, so he goes back into his lab to make some adjustments to his invention.

Catboy has another plan; he wants Owlette to hop up to the rooftop and Gekko to the tower. When Romeo comes out, she’ll take the remote from him while he destroys the satellite. They just stare at him, though, and inform him that he’s forced them into doing whatever he wants. Even if he is the team leader, his ideas won’t always be the best, and this is proven true when all his ideas failed in stopping Romeo’s scheme.

Catboy tries to defend himself at first, but then finds himself empathizing with his friends that he doesn’t like being controlled. He realizes they’re right: he ironically controlled his friends himself and ignored their ideas. The team can still stop Romeo, though; Catboy can distract him as he is controlled long enough for Owlette and Gekko to dismantle the satellite tower. This time, as a good leader, Catboy listens to his friends and agrees to follow them.

Finished making adjustments to his remote, Romeo makes Owlette and Gekko jump with Catboy for a brief moment before he zaps the whole team to stop. He announces that he’ll be going to the town square to zap everyone into his control. Just when he threatens to control them again if they attempt to follow him, Catboy claims that he will stop him. Romeo zaps Catboy for stating that declaration, and he takes off with him so he can witness him taking over the world.

Owlette and Gekko quickly catch up with the lab. As Catboy requests Romeo to make him do various actions, they disable the satellite tower piece by piece. Once everyone arrives at the target location, Romeo gets ready to control everyone. Before he can do that, he decides to zap Catboy to act like a frog. He is zapped himself, though, due to Gekko aiming the now leftover satellite dish at him.

Owlette retrieves the big remote and zaps Catboy back to normal. She mutes Romeo and has him return all the remote controls and their inside parts. He is also controlled to give the team the small Radical Romeo Remote. Catboy commends his teammates for coming up with a great plan, while they commend him for being a great team leader in the end. The team zaps Romeo back to normal, and they shout out their signature victory phrase as the villain drives off.

The next day, Connor, Amaya, and Greg test out their helicopter model at the sports field. They are confident that they can win the race thanks to Amaya’s flying skills. Greg takes the remote and pretends to zap himself into dancing. Connor and Amaya join him, and they all fall down laughing as the episode ends.
